OnePlus pushes out a new Open Beta for the 3/3T

May has just begun and we already have a new Open Beta for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. It's certainly more exciting than the last one, bringing a changelog that includes more than bug fixes and optimizations (they're still there, but whatever). As usual, I've posted the changelog below.

New home screen in Google Maps for Android, exclusive to India

Google announced today on its India Blog that it's introducing a new home screen layout for Maps on Android. The new interface has been designed exclusively for users in India. In what looks like a streamlined version of the pull-up tab found in the US and European versions of the app, here we see cards that are optimized to be less data-hungry and load faster on poor connections across India.

[Deal Alert] MX Player Pro is down to 10 cents in a few countries

With the Play Store's new ability to have apps go free momentarily, we rarely feel the need to highlight the weekly 10-cent deals anymore because they do seem less appealing than something going completely free, so we've been posting them in our long deal roundup posts instead. But we're making an exception here because the 10-cent discount is hitting one app you might have on your watchlist and that hasn't dropped in price a single time in 5 years: MX Player Pro. (Actually it even rose in price from $5.22 to $5.99 in December 2015.)

MX Player Pro is the ad-free version of the beloved and powerful MX Player, a video player that can handle more video formats and encodings than I care to list here.

Red tint display fix starts rolling out to the S8 and S8+ on T-Mobile

Nobody wants their brand new $700+ phone with gorgeous QHD Super AMOLED display to have a red tint. That completely ruins the experience and it undermines one of the most important aspects of the phone since it's the one you interact with all the time.

Google Phone 9.0 prepares to add Android O's Notification Channels, picture messaging, post-call messages, and more [APK Teardown]

Late last week, an update to Google's Phone app began rolling out with no immediately obvious changes to the experience. While users don't have anything to play with quite yet, there are several interesting hints about what is to come in future releases. Hidden among the app's resources are signs of support for Android O's new Notification Channels feature, in-call picture messaging, post-call messaging, hidden menu codes for Motorola phones, and even some odd images of paws. Yes, seriously.

Official changelog posted

Google posted a changelog for the Phone app's latest update with the addition of emergency location display and "call waiting improvements" making up the majority of the new features.

[Deal Alert] Google Home is $15 off at Newegg with additional $20 gift card

Do you want a Home? Do you really need a Home in your life? A small little Home you can call your own... oops, sorry, you have to call it Google or it won't reply to you. But in case you answered yes to the first two questions and you were clear about the fact that I was talking about the Google Home speaker-slash-personal-assistant, then you might be in luck today.

Newegg is discounting the Google Home $15 from $129 to $114, which is exactly the same discount as the official Google Store, but it's also throwing in a $20 gift card, making this one of the best Home deals we've seen in a while.

Oppo's official distributor site, Oppostyle.com, is officially closed

Oppostyle.com used to be one of the sites you could go to if you wanted to buy an Oppo phone. It had localizations for Europe, North America, and the International market, and it was recognized by Oppo community employees as the company's official distributor. However, the site is now closed and the last instance we can find of it online was back on February 11. At the time, it was showing a flash sale for the Find 7, Find 7a, R7, R7s, and R7 Plus.

We can't tell for sure when the shutdown happened between February 11 and today, but it is definitely now showing the sign posted in the image above.

ARM announces its next-generation 'Mali-Cetus' display processor

Most Android devices use ARM processors, usually with ARM's 'Mali' display unit to render graphics. Usually every new Mali upgrade is a small incremental improvement over the previous design, but not this time around. ARM has taken the wraps off 'Mali-Cetus,' the company's next-generation display processor.

Samsung launches Galaxy S8 Bixby voice commands in Korea

Bixby was supposed to be one of the Galaxy S8's defining features, but it was far from ready at launch. Instead of the voice commands Samsung promised when it announced Bixby, we got a news feed, reminders, and some borderline useless computer vision gimmicks. Now, Samsung is aiming to endow Bixby with voice commands. They're only available in Korea right now, but it's a start.
